Welwyn QEII

Larger homes are becoming important for families across the UK as property prices see an increase in the ‘two-family’ households. Analysis by the Office of National Statistics shows the number of extended families living together has risen by 66% to 323,000 households compared to 194,000, 10 years ago. This is due to ‘boomerangers,’ young couples choosing to live at home with their parents or elderly people living with their adult offspring. House buyers looking for more affordable space for their multi-family home should look to Bellway Homes’ latest development, Bellway at QEII in Hertfordshire.

The first phase has now launched, offering 15 two, three and four bedroom homes to purchase off-plan. The striking development, off Howlands, on the site of the former QEII hospital, will comprise 163 properties including houses and apartments. The homes in the Hertfordshire town, known for its tree-lined boulevards, will enjoy a quiet position, surrounded by woodland and large open spaces that will appeal to families including first-time buyers and those who still want to commute into the capital.

Jody Bryant, Sales Manager for Bellway Homes North London comments: “We are excited to have launched Bellway at QEII, a great new development which offers families contemporary homes with more space for their money.

“We urge anyone interested to come down and see the new show home for themselves, to reserve a great home in a desirable garden city. We anticipate these homes will be snapped up, so those interested in the development should register their interest now.”

The homes incorporate modern design features such as open-plan living spaces, Zanussi integrated kitchen appliances and en-suite shower rooms. All houses will have garages or parking and private gardens.

Families will also be impressed with the quality of schools including Sycamore Day Nursery and Pre-School within a few minutes’ walk. Commonswood and Holwell Primary Schools are also nearby while Sir Frederic Osborn School caters for secondary school children.

Residents will have only a 10-minute drive to the town centre, offering an array of shops including a John Lewis, Waitrose and the Howard Centre that offers 58 high street stores under one roof. Hatfield Galleria including 80 designer and high street stores is also four miles away. The shopping centre also includes 15 restaurants, a multi-screen cinema and a jungle-themed children’s play area. Leisure facilities close to the development include The Campus, where residents will find Hawthorne Theatre and the Garden City Cinema; Mill Green Golf Course and Gosling Sports Park are also nearby.

Perfect for commuters, Welwyn Garden City Railway Station is only an eight-minute drive away from the QEII development with journeys into London King’s Cross taking 25 minutes by train. Good local road links include access to the A1M in less than 10 minutes connecting to London. For international travel Luton Airport is a 30-minute drive away.

Prices start at £319,995 for a two bedroom coach house, £384,995 for a three bedroom home and £484,995 for a four bed home. For more information or to register your interest, visit
